Growing up, I can remember that one of the big non-video games that kids like myself seemed to love was Hungry Hungry Hippos.  I still remember seeing all the commercials for the chaotic and fun game.  Well, as much as I enjoyed playing Hungry Hungry Hippos, I would much rather play Hungry Hungry Koopas!

One Super Mario Bros fan by the name of KodyKoala is the creator of this fantastic Hungry Hungry Koopas game!  This Super Mario Bros version of Hungry Hungry Hippos features the Koopa Kids and you even have the chance to buy it!  Although I don’t know the price, it will be on sale at the El Paso Comic Con which starts September 14th (this Friday), so if you really want this, make sure to go!

Apparently this took about 50 hours to make and I would say it was time well spent!  Each Koopa took about 10 hours to make and the “board” took about 10 hours as well. Great job KodyKoala!

I’ve seen and posted a number of amazing Super Mario themed wedding cakes but this has to be one of my favorites.  Actually, this isn’t just a Super Mario Bros themed cake, it also has a Mario Kart layer!  This is definitely the wedding cake for fans of anything Super Mario related!

I don’t know who the happy couple is that had this cake for their wedding, but this cake was created by the obviously talented people at Hazelnut Bakery in the UK.  Its not every day you see a cake with Mario wearing a tanooki suit!  However, I think my favorite part of the cake has to be the Mario Kart tier that looks like the Rainbow Road course (although its not as amazing as the Mario Kart wedding cake I posted last year).  Comparisons aside, this is definitely one of the coolest Mario wedding cakes ever!

Although I have a tremendous love for music and spend most of my waking hours listening to it, I can’t say I have a musical bone in my body.  As a kid, I could play the recorder and peck out a few songs on the piano, but I have never seriously tried to learn to play an instrument.  However, if this Super Mario electric guitar had existed when I was a kid, I suspect my life would be much different!

The awesome people over at G33kd are selling these custom Super Mario electric guitars for $995.00 AUD ($1,014 USD).  They are hand airbrushed and look and sound incredible!

You can see the amazing Super Mario electric guitar in the picture below (which seems to be inspired by Paper Mario) although I highly recommend checking out the video which not only tells you about the guitar but allows you to give it a listen.  For those that are lazy and just want to hear the Super Mario Bros theme music played on this guitar, jump to 7:30 in the video.

Do you have a Duck Hunt inspired wall that is still in need of ducks?  Well, then I have found the ducks for you!  Meet the LEGO 8-bit Duck Hunt ducks wall decorations!

Etsy seller madebymecreative is selling this set of three LEGO Ducks from the classic NES game Duck Hunt for $325.20.  Personally, that seems rather steep to me for a few LEGO bricks in the shape of a duck (or in this case, three), but I suppose if you aren’t good with LEGO bricks maybe you don’t want to deal with making your own.  Either way, these are awesome!

If you do have a Duck Hunt inspired wall, I want to see pictures!

It seems like it has been a while since I have posted any cool Super Mario Bros themed tattoos but I think this is easily one of my all time favorites.  8-Bit Mario tattoos are rather common, but how many have Mario shooting fireballs across a guys back to hit Bowser?  Only one that I know of!

Super Mario Bros fan Jimy Burke is the awesome guy in this picture with Mario shooting fire at Bower and I’d say this qualifies him as one of the coolest Mario fans I have ever seen!  This tattoo was done by a guy by the name of Big Ron in the Tampa, FL area although he apparently bounces around from tattoo parlor to tattoo parlor so you may have to do some investigative work to find him if you want him to do a tattoo for you.

If you parents were anything like mine, they would always tell you not to play with your food as a kid.  Well, as I have shown with the hundreds of geeky food related posts on here over the years, playing with your food is not a bad thing!  It can even be fun if you have a Legend of Zelda sword made out of a big breadstick!

Tumblr user spacekat267 did created exactly that with his awesome baking skills!  This Legend of Zelda breadstick sword even features the Triforce on the handle!  It might not work so well against many of the enemies in Hyrule, but at least you won’t have to worry about going hungry on your journey!
